celebrate | flowers in tin cans

Repurpose your old soup cans (or vintage motor oil cans) and use them as vases to hold fresh Spring blooms.  That Esso Motor Oil can above was found (by my picker of a brother, Andrew) in an old dump by my house.  He’s found glass whisky bottles, cans, pans, and other treasures.  One day I’ll be a real picker and get my hands dirty digging for treasures.

I’m taking tomorrow off from blogging since I’m in Virginia helping my friend Janice with a super fun photo shoot she’s put together, visiting with wonderful friends, and spending time with my boyfriend.

Have a blessed weekend!  I’ll be back Monday with some exciting new sponsor introductions!

    the florist down the street from me spray paints aluminum cans in bright colors and wraps a baker's twine bow around it. precious. i've been collecting cans ever since i saw it!

    Love this idea! It's a great juxtaposition – beautiful, delicate flowers alongside sturdy tin cans. Lovely.

    Have a good weekend …

    I love the motor oil can! I have a picker of a husband who comes home with all sorts of random vessels… I should put in a request for something like that!

    Have a great time this weekend, Rebecca!

    Adorable idea. 🙂 Has much more of a life to it than an ordinary vase. 🙂

    Very lovely as always. I use mason jars usually, but have to give these tin cans a try now!

    The yellow in tin is such a cool feel.
    Brilliant idea Rebecca:)

    I love this! I do it with all my succulents. I think it gives the arrangement a neat textural quality…and a hint of vintage which is never a bad thing. 🙂
